David Feherty made quite the claim about Greg Norman during the final round broadcast of the first LIV Golf League event of 2023.
That claim? That Norman was probably the most "recognisable athlete on the planet" back in the 80s and 90s.
There is of course a chance that this was simply a mere slip of the tongue from Feherty and he omitted the word 'Australian' at the start of that sentence.
Viewers were watching an approach shot from Patrick Reed when Feherty said:

Catching up on the @livgolf_league broadcast (no spoilers!) against my doctor’s orders. I was rewarded with Feherty saying Greg Norman changed the game and was probably the most recognizable athlete on the planet in the 80s and 90s.

Comments on the clip included:
"I have no regrets at all"
Feherty, 64, joined the LIV Golf League as their lead play-by-play announcer alongside Arlo White and Jerry Foltz last August.
His departure from NBC Sports and Golf Channel did come as a bit of a surprise.
Speaking shortly after joining the breakaway tour, Feherty even called out a number of LIV players for what he viewed as a 'BS' claim.
It was all about money, Feherty said.
Before the first LIV Golf League event of 2023 in Mexico, which was won by Charles Howell III, Feherty insisted that he had absolutely no regrets about his decision.
Feherty told Golf Digest of his decision to leave NBC:
He added: "Believe me, I have no regrets at all."
Going forward, Feherty said his goal is to, 'P*** off at least one viewer per week, but I'm hoping for more."
